Suzuki becomes deputy PlayStation boss

Took 24 years. Will report to Hirai.

Kunimasa Suzuki has been promoted to deputy president of Sony Computer Entertainment, making him the second most important PlayStation person behind Kaz Hirai.

Suzuki will take charge of strategy and product planning, and brings over 20 years of experience in previous Sony positions - particularly those as manager of the Sony VAIO business - to the table.

"Together with Hirai, he will now spearhead the PlayStation business, where the network will now play an even greater role in expanding the business going forward," said Sony in a statement.

Suzuki is "extremely excited", and wants to "fuse" consumer electronics with the PlayStation brand, which sounds very similar to the expansion of PlayStation Network onto televisions, cameras and phones that we heard about last week.
